Abstract

The geodesic transport theory unveils the especial fluid trajectory sets, referred to as Lagrangian Coherent Structures (LCS), that cause a flow to organize into ordered patterns. This is illustrated through the analysis of an oceanic flow dataset and contrasted with the tendency of a widely used flow diagnostic to carry coherence imprints as an effect of the influence of LCS on neighboring fluid trajectories.
